Allegra School - Harmony Day @ Allegra

Harmony Day @ Allegra

At Allegra School Coffs Harbour we understand a little extra support, flexible learning opportunities in small classes and an environment free from prejudice can make a significant impact to a student's confidence, wellbeing and overall school experience.Allegra is a safe learning space for students who find studying and socialising in mainstream schools challenging. We welcome young people struggling with anxiety, depression or trauma, with neurodiversity (on the spectrum) or learning difficulties, who have experienced bullying or who identify as part of the rainbow community.

We believe a small school, makes a big difference. Allegra offers small classes in an adult learning environment. We prioritise personal growth, respectful relationships and instilling a sense of belonging. Allegra offers an inclusive and flexible learning environment tailored to support students in Years 9 & 10. The subjects are the same, it's the delivery that is different. Our goal is to provide young people with the opportunity to realise their potential on both academic and personal levels.

We are not an easy alternative. We are an opportunity to reset, reinvent and refresh your academic and personal goals and provide a support network to assist you working towards those goals. Our students are carefully selected, those willing to commit to bettering themselves while being supportive of others are more likely to be enrolled.While Allegra has a range of support services to assist students with barriers to learning, we do not offer one-on-one behaviour intervention or high levels of behaviour modification.

As an independent school we are a member of the Association of Independent Schools of NSW and our aim is to offer all eligible young people the chance to grow and mature while undertaking their high school education in a safe and supportive environment. At Allegra we seek to include those young people whose lives may be complicated, challenging or require a particular understanding in order to achieve success.

Harmony Day @ Allegra

Allegra School recently celebrated Harmony Day with a vibrant display of cultural diversity and togetherness. Students from all backgrounds came together to share food and stories from around the world, highlighting the rich tapestry of cultures that make up our school community.

The day was marked by a feast of international cuisines, with students bringing in dishes from countries such as the Netherlands, Samoa, Germany, Australia, Italy, USA, China, Mexico, and France, among others. This culinary showcase provided a delicious glimpse into the varied tastes and traditions of our global community.

To further emphasise the message of inclusivity and unity, both students and staff dressed in shades of orange, the official colour of Harmony Day. This collective display of orange was a visual celebration of diversity and acceptance, reinforcing the idea that we are stronger together.

In the morning, students engaged in discussions about the significance of Harmony Day in Australia during their GELL class. They also participated in a creative activity, making 'You Belong' mini shirts, which were proudly displayed in the student common area, symbolising our commitment to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all.

The success of Harmony Day was made possible by the enthusiastic participation of our school community. We extend a heartfelt thank you to all the parents and students who contributed to the event, whether through preparing food or organising the orange attire. Your efforts helped make this day a truly memorable celebration of diversity and unity.

Harmony Day at Allegra School was a resounding success, showcasing the beauty of cultural diversity and the strength of a community united in acceptance and respect. We look forward to continuing to celebrate and embrace our differences throughout the year.
